New Music Monday – Week 11 2018
Welcome to Fangeist #MusicMonday, an interactive curated list new albums, new EPs, new tracks, new videos…basically what we’re listening to at Fangeist that has been newly released this week.
Every Monday, we’ll share a new selection of songs/albums/videos that have been specially curated by Fangeist’s Editorial department, a team with their fingers on the pulse of what’s happening across the music spectrum, be it jam bands, hip-hop, Grateful Dead, Phish, Funk, Jazz, Electronic, R&B, rock, World, Reggae and every nuanced point in between.
From fresh new tracks from the fresh new artists, legendary bands to the iconoclastic, THESE are the tunes from the music world that you need to hear. And every Monday, you can discover them here.
Frankie Simone’s unique brand of queer pop feels clearly like there is a new musical movement building in Portland. It is percussive, catchy and polished as it gets; moreover, it is also strikingly mindful. Let’s call it pop with a purpose. What is very clear is that Simone simply accepts herself, as herself.
12 years and five albums later, folk band Horse Feathers shares a fresh sound on “Without Applause.” The quiet, subtle tenor of singer’s Justin Ringle’s vocals along with the band’s delicate arrangements have earned the group a huge and dedicated fan base; however, this album is about a musical evolution. A seriously soulful, 70s rhythm section creates an energetic and metaphysical sound. The band’s new album, “Appreciation,” will be available via Kill Rock Stars on May 4.
